The genera Lophiostoma, Misturatosphaeria and several other allied taxa in Lophiostomataceae are revisited. Accounts of these taxa, including their history, morphology, and family placement, based on molecular phylogeny, are provided. Type or representative specimens of Lophiostoma and Misturatosphaeria were examined and fresh specimens were obtained from Germany, Italy, Japan and Thailand. A multi-gene phylogenetic analysis of the lophiostomataceous genera Floricola, Lophiostoma… 
Revision of Lophiotremataceae (Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes): Aquasubmersaceae, Cryptocoryneaceae, and Hermatomycetaceae fam. nov.
TLDR
The family Lophiotremataceae is taxonomically revised on the basis of morphological observations and phylogenetic analyses of sequences of nuclear rDNA SSU, ITS, and LSU regions and tef1 and rpb2 genes, resulting in three new families and two new genera.
Microfungi associated with Clematis (Ranunculaceae) with an integrated approach to delimiting species boundaries
TLDR
The study revealed two new families, 12 new genera, 50 new species, 26 new host records with one dimorphic character report, and ten species are transferred to other genera on Clematis.
Additions to Sporormiaceae: Introducing Two Novel Genera, Sparticola and Forliomyces, from Spartium
TLDR
This paper introduces Sparticola and Forliomyces gen. nov. with three new species in the family Sporormiaceae based on multi-locus phylogeny together with morphology, and Illustrated accounts are provided for the new taxa, which are compared with morphologically related taxa.
The families Distoseptisporaceae fam. nov., Kirschsteiniotheliaceae, Sporormiaceae and Torulaceae, with new species from freshwater in Yunnan Province, China
TLDR
The polyphyletic nature of Dendryphion, Sporidesmium and Torula-like species are partially resolved, but further sampling with fresh collections and molecular data of species are needed to obtain a natural classification.
Microfungi on Tamarix
TLDR
Two new genera Neomicrosphaeropsis (Didymellaceae) and Tamaricicola (Pleosporaceae) are introduced and a comprehensive account of microfungi on Tamarix is provided, which includes a list with data from the literature, as well as those identified in the present study.
Introducing a new pleosporalean family Sublophiostomataceae fam. nov. to accommodate Sublophiostoma gen. nov.
TLDR
A new genus, Sublophiostoma is introduced to accommodate the new taxon, S. thailandica sp.
Fungal diversity notes 1036–1150: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions on genera and species of fungal taxa
TLDR
The present study describes one new family (Pseudoberkleasmiaceae in Dothideomycetes), five new genera (Caatingomyces, Cryptoschizotrema, Neoacladium, Paramassaria and Trochilispora), 71 new species and twelve new combinations.
Taxonomic Rearrangement of Anthostomella (Xylariaceae) Based on a Multigene Phylogeny and Morphology
TLDR
A re-description of morphological characters among these taxa suggests that Anthostomella can be circumscribed based on immersed ascomata, cylindrical asci with short pedicels and pigmented, equilateral ascospores with germ slits, whileAnthostomelloides is characterized by oblong-ellipsoidal ascospore lacking germ slit.
Taxonomic novelties of saprobic Pleosporales from selected dicotyledons and grasses
TLDR
14 new species are described here include 14 new species, a new geographical record and three new host records of known species from dicotyledons and grasses in China, Italy, Russia and Thailand.

Taxonomic revision of Lophiostoma and Lophiotrema based on reevaluation of morphological characters and molecular analyses
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of 29 isolates of these genera based on the SSU and LSU nrDNA sequences confirmed that Lophiostoma and Lophiotrema are distinct genera belonging to different families; the ascus shape is a reliable taxonomic indicator to allow discrimination between the genera.
Towards a phylogenetic clarification of Lophiostoma / Massarina and morphologically similar genera in the Pleosporales
TLDR
It is confirmed that both Lophiostoma and Massarina are polyphyletic.
Molecular phylogenetics of Pleosporales: Melanommataceae and Lophiostomataceae re-circumscribed (Pleosporomycetidae, Dothideomycetes, Ascomycota)
TLDR
Two nuclear DNA gene markers, nuclear ribosomal large subunit DNA and translation elongation factor 1-alpha are employed in order to examine the molecular phylogenetics of Pleosporales with strong emphasis on the families Melanommataceae and Lophiostomataceae.
Towards a natural classification of Dothideomycetes 2: The genera Cucurbidothis, Heterosphaeriopsis, Hyalosphaera, Navicella and Pleiostomellina (Dothideomycetes incertae sedis )
TLDR
By re-examining the generic types of Dothideomycetes genera, incertae sedis, higher level positions are proposed according to the morphology based on modern taxonomic concepts but, more importantly, the taxa are illustrated so that they are better understood.
Towards a natural classification of Dothideomycetes 7: The genera Allosoma , Austropleospora , Dangeardiella , Griggsia and Karschia (Dothideomycetes incertae sedis )
TLDR
In this paper the type specimens of Allosoma, Austropleospora, Dangeardiella, Griggsia and Karschia were re-examined and are illustrated and an overview of the history and descriptions and illustrations of these genera are provided.
The Genera of Fungi - fixing the application of the type species of generic names – G 2: Allantophomopsis, Latorua, Macrodiplodiopsis, Macrohilum, Milospium, Protostegia, Pyricularia, Robillarda, Rotula, Septoriella, Torula, and Wojnowicia
TLDR
This paper focuses on 12 genera of microfungi, 11 of which the type species are neo- or epitypified here: Latorua gen. nov, and three new families: Macrodiplodiopsisceae, Macrohilaceae, and Robillardaceae.
Fungal diversity notes 1–110: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal species
This paper is a compilation of notes on 110 fungal taxa, including one new family, 10 new genera, and 76 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new family,
A new species of the genus Trematosphaeria from China
TLDR
The newly isolated Trematosphaeria terricola is characterized by short-papillate ascomata with suborbicular ostiolum, 3-septate, cinnamon-brown, fusiform ascospores with narrowly rounded ends, verruculose at maturity.
The families of bitunicate ascomycetes
TLDR
In a transitional classification of the Ascomycetes, 109 monophyletic entities (clades) are recognized and the name Lecanidiaceae is proposed to replace Patellariaceae Corda, and Cyanoder–mella to replace Cyanoderma Hohn.
